Secrets of the Railway Girls

Absolutely delighted to share my review of this one.

Manchester, November 1940

As the war continues and secrets threaten the railway girls, they will discover the true meaning of friendship.


For Dot, her job on the railways is everything. Transporting parcels around the country gives her pride that she is doing her bit for the war effort, but a growing friendship causes problems when home and work collide.

Joan loves her boyfriend Bob dearly, but when tragedy strikes, her heart is torn apart, and she is forced to make a decision that could hurt those she loves most.

Meanwhile Mabel has finally found a place to call home and her relationship seems to be going from strength to strength. However, the relentless bombing in the Christmas blitz is about to destroy everything she holds dear, and she will need her friends’ courage and generosity now more than ever.

Brought together by their work on Manchester’s railways, the three women find that with the support and encouragement of each other, they can get through even the most challenging of times.

Oh Maisie, you have completely done it again with another absolutely fantastic and wonderful read that I really haven’t been able to put down. I haven’t wanted to either.

I absolutely love the Railway Girls this has been a welcome revisit to them and I have absolutely loved continuing their journey with them.

I have been completely captivated from the very first chapter and extremely annoyed when real life has kept me from reading. I have completely devoured this at every opportunity.

The cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous and definitely made me want to keep reading. I’ve had moments where I’ve wanted to cry for the characters. I am definitely very invested after two books. These are very realistic characters who could be family.

The relationship between the characters in this book is one that is very special and as you read it, you can’t help but think of your real life friendships.

This is definitely a book I highly recommend. It is so deserving of all the stars. The Railway Girls are now like family, I can’t wait for more from the girls and this amazing author.
